Honorlock

Honorlock is an online remote proctoring tool that allows you to take your exam remotely. It does not require you to download any software and integrates seamlessly with Blackboard by means of a Chrome Extension that can be easily removed and added back later. You DO NOT need to create an account or schedule an appointment in advance. It is completely controlled by the Instructor with real-time video updates as soon as students finish testing.
